Next up, how how good is UPS and USPS delivering on time after it leaves Adafruit? Here’s what their numbers look like for May:
UPS orders arrived on time an average of 98.67% this is based on a sample audit of 14,000+ packages (last 30 days). Specific services like 3-day select are even higher, 99.35%
USPS orders arrived on time an average of 93.9% on site based on a sample audit of 8,000+ packages. First class took an average of 3.4 days, Priority 2.8 days with the maximum for each (severe delays 24 days). We do not offer USPS for regions that have known issues with delays so the average is likely higher than other companies that offer USPS to all 50 states.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
